Hit Me With the Details - The 2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI Up Close & Personal

There are four different trims to choose from with the 2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI, starting with the S trim, moving up to the Sport trim, then to the penultimate SE trim, and finally the top-tier Autobahn trim. Each trim level opens up new standard and available features, with graduating levels of excellence, performance, and comfort. Here are all the ways the 2017 VW Golf GTI shines bright from the Volkswagen lineup:

  • So, What's Under the Hood?-As we mentioned, this is the juiced up version of the Golf we all know and love, so it's truly come to perform. There's a standard 2.0-liter Turbocharged TSI® engine thundering away in its belly, and this baby spits out a lean, mean 210 horsepower. The base engine also gives you two transmission options: a 6-speed manual transmission or a 6-speed DSG® automatic transmission with Tiptronic® and Sport mode, for those who want the ease of an automatic and the control of a manual-Volkswagen says, why not both? For those who seek even more power-we did say unbridled didn't we?-on the Sport trim and above, you'll see a slight uptick in power, with a 2.0-liter Turbocharged TSI® engine that spits 220 horsepower (achieved with premium fuel). Talk about Giddyup! In terms of raw performance, the Sport trim brings features like 220-hosepower, VAQ differential upgraded brakes and 18-inch Nogaro wheels, and all the trims feature a Driving Mode Selection and Performance Monitor.

  • All brawn and power would get pretty old pretty fast, which is why the 2017 Golf GTI makes expert use of its compact interior to create a seriously comfortable space. You'll see standard features like heated front seats and Clark Plaid cloth seating surfaces standard, as well as a Bluetooth® audio steaming and a Composition Media touchscreen sound system, but move up a trim or two and you'll get access to an available Fender® Premium Audio System, Discover Media touchscreen navigation, leather seating surfaces, as well as keyless access with push-button start. It might be built to perform, but it will definitely keep you comfortable during your more mundane trips around town.

  • Last, but certainly not least: Safety-also known as, the stuff your mother will thank you for. You'll see a standard offering of LED Foglights and a Rearview Camera System, while the Driver Assistance Package is only available as an option for the highest-level trim. This package offers features such as Blind Spot Monitor, Adaptive Cruise Control, and Forward Collision Warning with Automatic Emergency Braking.
